It’s a thrill to be able to attend events in person and fingers crossed it stays that way. But I also love taking part in online panels and events that can be accessed by people from anywhere in the world.

July 21 – July 24

Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival

I’m so excited to get back to Harrogate for this year’s festival, after missing it for several years due to living abroad and, of course, Covid. I’m taking part in several events and hosting an author dinner.

And if you see me hobbling around the beer tent (recovering from ankle surgery rather than alcohol-related staggering) please do say hi.

September 2022

York Festival of Writing 

So looking forward to this one, especially getting to meet up with my Jericho Writers friends. I’ll be delivering several workshops and sessions, and will be milling about ready to chat as well. I’m staying for the whole weekend and I’d love to see you there.
